The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

Quesillo from Etla - It doesn't get any better....

Etla is world famous for its cheeses.  You can find Oaxacan cheese in many places in the States, but there's nothing like getting it incredibly fresh, right from the heart of Etla, the market.
This is Doña Vicki, who I think has some of the best queso and quesillo in the market.  This was soooo fresh and she balled it up like you wouldn't believe.  I joked with her, "Is that the first time you've done that?"  She's probably done it tens of thousands of times.  I've been buying from her for ten years.  Conservatively, if she made twenty a day for a year...  that's 7,300 balls and that is being very conservative. She makes much more than that and in different sizes.  She also has lots of other highly edible things.  That's mine on the lower right.... Mmmmmm.
